Honest and transparent answers only please
If another game (no this has nothing to do with PES lol it’s purely a hypothetical question) came out with a similar mode to FUT with vastly superior gameplay, but no licensing came out, would you be interested? Assuming the game still utilized a similar component to SBCs, had a massive player database, smooth gameplay that constantly took and implemented community feedback and was also in open dialogue/communication with its player base.
Assuming it reintroduced a similar structure for bronze and silver only tournaments, maintained weekly challenges, incorporated a competitive mode similar to WL and was genuinely a joy to play. Passing didn’t feel broken, defending was improved, skill moves were effective but nerfed etc.
The biggest catch being it had absolutely no licensing whatsoever. Though it could be very mod friendly and therefore the community on PC and PS4 could implement stadiums, badges, kits etc if they chose.
If this was a reality, would you be interested at all or would the stance be “no licensing, no interest. Not enough players at the start to hold my attention. I’m going back to FUT”
What say you?
